also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
Welp. It's an improvement on 27 for 27.
The rotation Saturday was more stable in comparison with last season, but the three running backs gained just 33 yards on 20 carries with the first team, and the blocking issues haven’t gone away.'
Story says Kalis should be back Monday.
Gardner stat line:
Gardner finished 9-for-18 with 110 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He was also sacked twice, fumbled once and was forced to throw the ball away several times against an aggressive defense that did not let up.
Some clips from the scrimmage last night

Edit: I think there's some misunderstanding here. This is just a thread to discuss whether or not Funk should be fired with a slant towards 'no.' It is a reaction to the calls for his firing in sUTL threads.
A summary of the debate to date (subject to edit)
Point: O-line is young.
Counterpoint: They're not as young.
Point: Borges effed this joint up. Compounding youth, unnecessary (and ineffective) complexity stifled learning.
Counterpoint: Can't blame everything on Al. What if we're mistaking the the root of the problem--maybe Al was trying to gameplan around Funk's deficiencies.
Point: He knows what he's doing.
Counterpoint: He doesn't know what he's doing.
-Ed: I don't know what I'm doing.
Point: You've got to look at this stuff in context. Blaming Funk for the poor state of the O-line is like forcing someone into a cage and accusing them of misbehaving when they throw something at you.
Counterpoint: We must judge him based on performance.

Iowa has lost their starting fullback for the season today. I'm pretty sure someone needs to be sacrificed or something at this point.
